Awesome Facebook Plugins for Your Joomla Website

Social is huge there is no denying that. We tell all clients that we work with that if you are building a website you should really think about making your website easily integrated with social networks.  Joomla has some great extensions that you can add to your website which makes it easy for you to go social!

Facebook FanBox

If you do not have this extension or an easy way for people to connect with you on facebook  then I suggest you add this one.  Super easy and has some awesome functions!

The Fan Box lets users:

– See how many users are already fans/like

– Read recent posts from the Page

– Let visitors become a fan with 1-click

Before you add a Fan Box to your website, you need the following:

– A Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5 website,

– Ability to install modules

– A Facebook Page that promotes your website
